Ronit Baranga Makes Tableware That Is Sure to Shock You!

Israeli artist Ronit Baranga uses clay and porcelain to craft some really strange and disturbing sculptures. In this work, Baranga sculpted realistic human mouths and fingers emerging from plates and lurking inside cups. The gnarled fingers and lips seem poised for action and anybody would most certainly hesitate before using any of these for fear of being bitten. Baranga finds the blurred border between the living and the still intriguing, fascinating and daunting and has made extensive use of it in her sculpted tableware. She has tried to change the way in which we percieve tableware now seen as an active object, aware of itself and its surroundings and responding to it. It does not allow to be taken for granted or to be used. It decides on its own how to behave in the situation.
